Use any smooth worsted weight wool or wool blend that you can knit to a gauge of 4st/inch. You will need a circular needle in the size to attain gauge that is 24” long for the collar, and a longer needle to transfer to as you increase stitches. I knit the sample using a 40” needle.

This poncho is knit from the top down, starting with a tubular cast-on for the deep ribbed turtleneck.

Poncho measures 26” from the bottom of the turtleneck to the hem, 109” around the bottom edge. To alter the length of the poncho, you will need to add/subtract approximately 200 yards for each 3” in length added/removed.

The pattern is written out, with both a chart and written instructions for the cable that runs down the front and back of the poncho.
